Sergio Garcia has tied the course record at Firestone by closing with seven straight birdies for a 9-under 61.

The record-tying round Friday gave Garcia a three-shot lead over Justin Rose going into the weekend at the Bridgestone Invitational.

The Spaniard broke the record on the back nine with a 27. He ended his day in style, making a 25-foot putt on the 17th hole and a 20-footer on the 18th. Phil Mickelson, who played with Garcia, took off his cap and bumped fists with Garcia.

The only hole on the back nine that Garcia did not make birdie was No. 11 — he missed from 15 feet from just off the green.

It puts Garcia in great shape to try to capture his first World Golf Championship.

Tiger Woods shot a 71 and was 10 shots behind.

Murray State officially opened the 2014 season Friday morning with their first practice at Stewart Stadium.  The practice was the first of two required practices in helmets.  MSU will hold its second practice in helmets Saturday morning at 8 a.m.

The Racers hit the ground running with an up-tempo practice that lasted a little under two hours.  The practice consisted of individual periods, team periods and special teams.  Like always, practice concluded with the bandit period.

“It was a good day,” said fifth-year head coach Chris Hatcher.  “We have a lot of young guys that just showed up, and trying to get them to go at the pace and urgency that we expect out of those guys was a bit of a challenge.  We did a whole lot of meeting yesterday and this is just a whole different world for a high school freshman when he steps onto a college campus.”

There will be plenty of competition throughout camp as position battles are going on at every position.  The most notable position battles are at quarterback, running back, wide receiver and in the secondary.

The goal of this preseason camp is to get the team into peak shape for the season opener against Union on Aug. 28.

“We don’t do two-a-days, said Hatcher.  “We just practice once a day and do a little jog thru at night to prepare them for the next practice.  We come out in the morning and they have plenty of time to recover.  We don’t practice very long, so when you do that over the course of 17 practices during camp, you tend to be pretty fresh when camp is over with.”

The St. Louis Cardinals have added newly acquired pitchers John Lackey and Justin Masterson to the active roster.

They also recalled outfielder Shane Robinson from Triple-A Memphis and optioned right-hander Carlos Martinez to the minors before a weekend series against the NL Central-leading Brewers.

Masterson (4-6, 5.51) will make his first start Saturday night and Lackey (11-7, 3.60) is expected to face his old team Tuesday in an interleague series against the Boston Red Sox.

Robinson is in his fourth stint with the Cardinals, and was batting .140 with two RBIs in 31 games. At Memphis, he was batting .304 with two homers and 16 RBIs in 53 games.
